Dejan Lovren has said he is unconcerned by the pressing game that Spurs are likely to deploy this weekend – and it’s all because of what he faces at Melwood, day in, day out.
“I’m always under pressure here at the training ground when we play against each other every day!” he joked (via official site).
“So I know what to expect because it’s really similar with our strikers pressing me. We need to be calm on the ball and get out as simply as possible and as quickly as possible.”
“Tottenham is always a good pressing team.”
Despite his laid back attitude to the threat posed by Harry Kane and co., he knows Spurs will provide a huge test for our lads.
“They are always tactically good in defending and they were not third last year without a reason,” he said.
Spurs have enjoyed a mixed start to the new season. They drew 1-1 with Everton on the opening day after being outplayed for large parts of the game then needed a late Wanyama goal to beat Palace 1-0 last weekend.
